We value intimacy with Godbelongingseeing the Kingdom of God come in our area… and having plenty of fun along the way. We are a family on a mission. We take God very seriously, but not ourselves. There is plenty going on, many fruitful ministries, and a developing vision to grow disciples of Jesus who make disciples of Jesus, becoming a resourcing church in our area.

  • Ministry Apprentice - Children or Youth

    We are at the start of an exciting new season of life, God calling us into new adventures and new responsibilities as a resource church in our area. Could God be calling you to join us as a ministry apprentice?

    We believe apprenticing Jesus involves being with him, becoming like him and practising doing the things he did. We want to provide an opportunity for those between the age of 18-30 to take a year out to develop foundations for life in these areas, playing a part in your growth as a disciple of Jesus and a leader in God’s church. 

    We are more interested in you than what you can do for us. But of course, there is plenty to be done in a relatively large church serving it’s community and sharing the good news of Jesus! To get the most out of the year you’ll need a servant heart, a willingness to be challenged and a heart for discipling young people.
